Zahirah Posted October 30, 2015 Report Share Posted October 30, 2015 Intro: Teacher by day, Jedi in training by night. I live in Japan. I love my job and the opportunities afforded me by living where I do.I am not in the worst shape in the world (can run a slow 10k and have some beginner experience in weight training), but I have never been an athlete. Over the years I have worked primarily on my INT with less attention to the physical side of things, and am finally at a point where I feel I am ready to change my focus. I have also had 3 knee surgeries and numerous lower body injuries over the years, so I really want to work towards improving my strength in order to prevent further injury.One of my biggest obstacles to reaching my goal of finally becoming an "athlete" is my lack of consistency which becomes increasingly difficult the colder it gets. Originally hailing from warmer climes, my body shuts down in the cold and I have a hard time staying consistent.Winter is coming, yo. Which is why I'm here.Main Quest: Establish and maintain a consistent health and wellness regimen with a focus on losing fat and gaining muscle.Quest #1: Intentional physical activity 6 days/week for at least one hour. Three of these days should be weight training at the gym.A=6 weeks (+2 STR, +2 STA)B=5 weeks (+2 STR, +1 STA)C=4 weeks (+1 STR, +1 STA)I need to set the bar high for this because of winter. This is the hardest time of year for me and I absolutely have to stay consistent somehow. Insurance - In case of sickness or injury, time reduces to 30 minutes and weight training is optional. Quest #2: Sleep at least 7 hours/night.A=42 nights (+2 CON, +2 STA)B=36 nights (+2 CON, +1 STA)C=30 nights (+1 WIS, +1 STA)I have realized recently that I am a completely different person even with one night a week at less than 7 hours.Quest #3: No more than 3 alcoholic drinks/week.A= 6 weeks (+2 STA, +1 CON, +1 CHA)B= 5 weeks (+1 STA, +1 CON, +1 CHA)C= 4 weeks (+1 WIS, +1 STA)D= 3 weeks (+1 WIS)F= 2 weeksAlcohol is ubiquitous in most aspects of life in Japan, so this is going to be particularly difficult. But, everything else falls apart when I drink too much so it has to happen.Life Quest: Create and stick to a sustainable budget.Reward: WIS +3. Failure to stick to the budget results in no stats awarded.What can I do to make all of this happen?Shit tons of planning. I love planning. I would be lost without my planner. Planning. God, planning!(P.S. I curse a lot). 4 Quote Becoming an Amazon Link to comment
